"The Patients' Association said it was a "sad indictment" of the priority our society gives to elderly people.
"There is now an overwhelming amount of evidence that elderly patients are being neglected in hospitals across the NHS.
"Whether they have dementia or not, if they are in need of help with personal care many of them won't get it. Time after time the issue is raised, but the problems continue.""
And of course NHS Complaints Procedures are Orwellian in the extreme. Nothing gets improved.
The NHS is extremely expensive and so much of the vast expense is wasted and compounded by providing poor and damaging treatment for the most vulnerable patients, who are most in need of care and compassion. - And heaven help you if you haven't any family to visit and stick up for you!
